Primary malignant glomus tumors of the thyroid gland are rare and may be associated with a poor prognosis and distant organ metastasis. To the best of our knowledge, only one case of a primary malignant glomus tumor in the thyroid gland has been reported in the English literature. 1 Here, we report another patient with such a tumor who only survived for about 6 months .   Thyroid cancer is the most common malignancy of the endocrine system and it is usually presented as nodular goiter, the last being extremely a common clinical and ultrasound finding. The widespread use of ultrasonography during the last decades has resulted in a dramatic increase in the prevalence of clinically inapparent thyroid nodules, which only in –% harbor thyroid . of the thyroid gland and trachea. In all other patients with secondary malignant invasion of the thyroid gland, involvement of that gland was part of widespread or generalized metas- tasis. Sites of metastasis most commonly asso- ciated with metastasis to the thyroid gland were bone, lymph nodes, liver, spleen, and lung (Table 1).   Tumours of the thyroid gland can be benign or malignant. Typically, thyroid malignancies present as a single nodule on the thyroid gland. Any patient presenting with a solitary thyroid nodule needs to investigate it thoroughly to rule out malignancy. However, malignant tumours of the thyroid gland are rare, accounting for around 5% of thyroid.

  The three major salivary glands are the parotid gland, submandibular gland, and sublingual glands. The parotid gland is the largest salivary gland and makes 25% of the saliva. Parotid tumor is the most common salivary gland tumors. The majority of parotid tumors are benign, but they are also where most malignant tumors emerge.   Thyroid cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the thyroid gland. The thyroid is a gland at the base of the throat near the trachea (windpipe). It is shaped like a butterfly, with a right lobe and a left lobe. The isthmus is a thin piece of tissue that connects the two lobes. It usually cannot be felt through the skin. Thyroid nodules are rarely associated with dysfunction, and most can be cured completely even if they contain malignant cancer. Swelling of the thyroid is classified into two types. The first is diffuse goiter in which the entire thyroid gland swells, similar to symptoms of Basedow’s disease and Hashimoto’s disease. Medullary carcinoma is a rare malignant tumor composed of parafollicular C cells secreting calcitonin. Calcitonin may serve as the precursor for amyloid that is deposited in the stroma of these tumors. Most occur sporadically, but in 20% of cases they are familial and associated with MEN-2A or MEN-2B.

Category of Impairments, Cancer (malignant neoplastic diseases) Soft tissue cancer of the head and neck (except salivary glands——and thyroid gland – ). A. Inoperable or unresectable. OR. B. Persistent or recurrent disease following initial anticancer therapy, except persistence or recurrence in the true vocal cord. A: Thyroid cancer develops when the cells of the thyroid grow and divide in an abnormal way. There are several types of thyroid cancer (see table below). It is possible to have more than one type at once, although this is unusual. Types of thyroid cancer Common papillary • most common type (about 70–80% of all thyroid cancer cases). There are different types of multiple endocrine neoplasia, and each type is associated with different cancers. MEN1 increases the risk of tumours in the parathyroid, pituitary and adrenal gland as well as the pancreas and ovary. MEN2 increases the risk of tumours in the thyroid, adrenal gland and parathyroid gland.

Aug; 74 (2)– [PMC free article] Articles from Annals of Surgery are provided here courtesy of Lippincott, Williams, and Wilkins. Other malignant tumors of the thyroid gland during childhood include medullary carcinoma arising in the parafollicular C cells, poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma, teratomas, lymphoma, and tumors such as metastatic carcinomas arising in other tissues.The prognosis in these tumors may be worse than in well-differentiated.

The thyroid gland has 2 main types of cells: Follicular cells use iodine from the blood to make thyroid hormones, which help regulate a person’s metabolism. Having too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) can cause a fast or irregular heartbeat, trouble sleeping, nervousness, hunger, weight loss, and a feeling of being too too little hormone.

In 3% of the cases, ectopic thyroid tissue is found in ovarian teratoma (struma ovarii). Low-grade malignant tumor may arise from struma ovarii (5–20%), and some may metastasize. Although management approaches are still uncertain, treatment of cancer of an aberrant thyroid tissue is the excision of the tumor followed by radioiodine therapy.

Thyroid Cancer is a thyroid neoplasm that develops in the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland consists of two large lobes that are connected by the isthmus and is located below the larynx on both sides of the trachea.

The gland secretes hormones from the hypothalamus that may be stored in the colloid or released into the blood in capillaries. Every year, millions of people are diagnosed with thyroid cancer or thyroid nodules. In Thyroid Cancer and Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes, you will learn that most thyroid nodules are benign and many patients with thyroid nodules do not need r, even if the nodule turns out to be malignant, the majority of thyroid cancers can be successfully Reviews: 1.

Abstract. The epithelial tumours of the thyroid are divided into benign, malignant, and C-cell categories. The malignant tumours are described under the following names: follicular carcinoma, solid and solid—follicular carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and anaplastic carcinoma.

Priya Kundra, Kenneth D. Burman, in The Molecular Basis of Cancer (Third Edition), Thyroid Tumors. Thyroid tumors are the most prevalent malignancies of the endocrine system. Follicular-cell–derived tumors comprise benign adenomas and well-differentiated (papillary or follicular), poorly differentiated (e.g., insular), and undifferentiated (anaplastic) carcinomas.

Typically, malignant thyroid tumors are known as thyroid lly, a malignant tumor of the thyroid is seen less frequently than those of a benign nature.

Hyalinizing trabecular tumor (HTT) is a rare thyroid gland neoplasm that was first described in by Carney et al. (1).

It is a thyroid tumor of a follicular origin and is characterized by trabecular pattern and intratrabecular hyalinization (2). HTT entered World Health Organization's (WHO) Thyroid Tumor Classification in (3).

Thyroid adenoma and hyperplasia are usually incidental findings during necropsy; Malignant thyroid tumors account for 63%% of all canine thyroid tumors; Malignant thyroid tumors are classified as follicular and parafollicular (= medullary or C-cell) Follicular thyroid carcinoma is subclassified as compact (solid), follicular, or mixed.

Malignant teratoma of the thyroid gland is exceedingly rare in adults. Many of the cases previously reported in the medical literature have fatal outcomes because of spread of tumor refractory to treatment. We report a case of primary malignant teratoma of the thyroid in a year-old woman.

A thyroid tumor develops as a result of abnormal replication or growth of the cells that make up the thyroid gland; specifically, the glandular tissues.

Benign (non-cancerous) thyroid tumors are referred to as adenomas, while malignant (cancerous) thyroid tumors are referred to as carcinomas and adenocarcinomas. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of the neck and is most well-known and responsible for producing thyroid hormone, the chemical in the body that is responsible for regulating the body's has two lobes, right and left, that are connected by a fibrous bridge called the isthmus.

Parafollicular cells in the thyroid produce the thyroid. Clinically apparent spread of malignant melanoma to the thyroid gland is rare, accounting for less than 5% of metastatic tumors to the thyroid1.

We present a case of a patient with malignant melanoma metastatic to the thyroid gland as an early manifestation of distant metastatic disease, as well as a review of the literature. Within the parotid gland 75 - 80% of tumours are benign. Around 50% of the tumours found in the submandibular glands are benign.

Sublingual gland tumours are very rare but if present, they are most likely to be malignant. In the United States, salivary gland cancers are uncommon with an incidence rate of in between and. Thyroid cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the thyroid gland.
